The 'On The Flower Farm' Workshop Series

We love sharing our love of flowers and the magic happening on the farm with you! The farm is not open to the public, so this is your chance to get behind the scenes and experience the beauty of Flourish Flower Farm. Join us on the flower farm to learn about our farming operation, pick flowers straight from our fields, to practice floral design & flower arranging skills using gorgeous locally-grown flowers and eat delicious snacks. Our workshops are simply about inspiring your creativity, having fun, learning basic floral design skills and enjoying the picturesque flower farm. 

I was so privileged to attend a workshop on arranging flowers. The workshop was amazingly clear and made an amateur like me feel comfortable and skilled. Niki did a beautiful job and the arrangements they make are so stunning - natural and gorgeous. Not like some florist who make everything looks so prescribed. Highly recommend Dogwood Blooms Farm.”

What Will You Experience?

We'll begin our time together with an in-depth tour of the flower fields. As you stroll amongst the beauty, you'll learn about our growing techniques and hopefully become inspired to grow your own patch of blooms.  After the tour of the fields, Niki will demonstrate how to arrange a centerpiece while talking you through her basic design philosophy and principles. Then, its your turn to create your own lush centerpiece!  You will receive one-on-one support and guidance throughout the entire process and have a huge assortment of flowers to choose from.

 

We intentionally limit attendance to just 15 participants so that the entire experience is personal and intimate. Our goal is for you to express your creativity using flowers and enjoy spending a few hours on our beautiful farm. We want you to feel empowered to buy a bundle of flowers from a local farm or grocery store and have the confidence to create something beautiful. If you are planning a DIY wedding, this is a great way to gain some skills to use in designing your own wedding flowers. No prior experience necessary!

I had a lovely time at the Evening on the Flower Farm workshop last Saturday! Although I have some experience with floral arranging with my job, I learned a lot of new information and enjoyed creating a beautiful centerpiece. It was interesting learning about the farm, and Alyssa did an excellent job with her presentation on designing a centerpiece. Very easy to follow and understand, and she and her team offered encouragement and advice as we arranged. Every detail was perfect, from the gorgeous and extensive selection of flowers to the delicious meal, infused beverages and calligraphy name cards. What a wonderful experience!”
